SIMposium: recent advancements in structured illumination microscopy - POSTPONED

Scientific meeting

Location

Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ

Overview

This meeting is postponed. More details to follow.

Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Kirti Prakash, Benedict Diederich, Dr Lothar Schermelleh and Dr Stefanie Reichelt.

Structured illumination microscopy (SIM) has emerged as an essential super-resolution technique for 3D and live-cell imaging. However, to date, there has not been a dedicated symposium/workshop covering different aspects of SIM, from biological applications, use of commercial instruments, to bespoke hardware and software development. The meeting aims to recap recent developments as well as outline future trends.

Highlights of this meeting: 

  1. An interdisciplinary meeting involving biologists, microscopists, physicists and engineers for discussions about the past, the current and the future advancements in SIM
  2. Overview of different theoretical, technical, biological and correlative aspects of SIM 
  3. Hands-on Hackathon with SIM experts to build an 'OpenSIM'-System based on the open-source optical toolbox UC2 (youseetoo.org)

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available closer to the meeting date. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A
